    Cabin Fever

    It's about that time of year when we northerners get sick of the inside of our own homes and offices and with always checking weather forecast before going much of any distance at all.
    Sometimes about now through March we'll go somewhere we don't need to be just to go somewhere.
    It must have been much worse for cabin living homesteaders back in the day, hence the name .
    We kind of wake up with the return of the sun but are still surounded by snow and cold.
    Because part of this seems to be light based and possibly connected to but not the same as SAD, I wondered if anyone else felt it and how far south cabin fever was felt?

    Its hasn't been to bad here. We have had temps up in the high 40s and 50s. No Snow on the ground. No ice.

    Still March is Right around the corner. Sometimes March goes out like a lion. Meaning snow and real cold temps.

    No cabin fever here. Although when there are "big" snow storms that close the area down for 3 or more days people claim to have cabin fever.

    It's been a pretty easy winter with plenty of sun and not a lot of snow.

    Still, we're heading down to Arizona at the end of the month.
